Feature request: "Copy" of RGB values

NateLumen
Booster

In pen sets and surfaces and probably elsewhere, I can select colors using the RGB (or other) sliders. If I want to copy that color code to a different surface or pen, I have to write it down somewhere and then reenter it for the new pen/surface. The copy/paste function doesn't work in these dialog boxes. Wouldn't it be great to be able to copy and paste these codes? Thanks!

Hi @NateLumen ,

 

I think this is a bug of the type of "sheesh, we forgot to allow shortcut keys in that field".... because right-mouse clicking on the RGB code for one pen WILL copy the code and right-mousing in the target RGB field of another pen WILL paste it.  So, that is the workaround for the moment.

I am not a Mac user, but can't you save your 'custom' colour settings to the 20 custom colours at the bottom of the dialogue for use when you need to choose a colour next time?

Hi @Karl Ottenstein,

 

Oh, great. I didn't even think to try a right click. That just about fixes it for me.

 

Thanks,
